6 Toddler Sensory Activities on It’s Playtime!

Share:

When I think of sensory activities, I can’t help but think of ooey, gooey, slimy stuff to put through your fingers. But there’s more to the senses then just touch. Sight, smell, taste, touch and sound.

While most sensory activities I see are usually touch-related, I did find a couple of others as well that focus on sight and smell on It’s Playtime last week.

I often also associate sensory activities to toddlers because it’s all about exploring with your senses and not following direction or learning a specific curriculum.

Below are 6 sensory play ideas for toddlers, you can also browse these other collections of sensory activities for toddlers:

 

These sensory activities are great for toddler exploration!

6 Sensory Activities for Toddlers

[above, from top, left to right]

  1. Water is one of the most basic sensory activities! Glimmer Snaps does outdoor learning adventures with water!
  2. Create With Your Hands also explore with their hands in shaving cream, a classic sensory activity, and makes shaving cream prints!
  3. Moon Sprig plays with peppermint and explores with their sense of smell and potentially taste!
  4. Play Through the Day is playing their way through the seasons with these autumn sensory bottles that work well for I spy and their sense of sight.
  5. A treasure hunt in the sand from Here Comes the Girls. A sensory activity that toddlers will love to dig their way through!
  6. Check out this spaghetti painting. Normally I see spaghetti painting with splatting and throwing of spaghetti. But this one, from Making Boys Men, the spaghetti is made into paintbrushes for the ultimate sensory experience!

    Please delete number 27. I did the exact same thing as last week and linked up a project twice in a row. I can’t believe I did it twice–and on all of the same sites! I think I have scatterbrained mommy syndrome!
